Tie 8 On is A 13.4% ABV strong ale with Ugandan vanilla beans. It’s big and bold with a blend of 8 different barrel aged beers hand selected by Brewmaster Peter Kiley and Barrel Program Manager Tim McDonnell. The nose greets you with toasted walnuts, baking brownies, chocolate chip cookies and brown sugar. And if that wasn’t enough, you get flavors of rich nougat, caramel, maple syrup, melted chocolate ice cream. Yeah, it’s a pretty special beer.
We couldn’t leave well enough alone, could we? We took Dark Subject Matter – our silky smooth adjunct-free American Imperial stout – and aged it in bourbon barrels.
The result is roasty, toasty, boozy and sweet barrel-aged stout that’s pretty darn perfect paired with a fine cigar, a hot fudge sundae or just by itself.
It’s time for the second version of our Fistful Of Cake Imperial Stout. This time, we’re adding cocoa nibs, freshly-peeled orange zest and Vietnamese cinnamon to our roasty and flavorful base stout.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a collaboration between three fast friends – ASW Distillery, Hop City Craft Beer and Wine / BoxCar ATL and Monday Night Brewing. We pumped a big (10%) imperial milk stout into ASW Duality Double Malt whiskey barrels and let it age.
